Text description provided by the architects. How to recontextualize the act of building our houses? In other words, how to reconnect our habitat to its territory, taking into account its particularities and its resources: climate, geography, history, built heritage, local materials, regional construction techniques? And how to take advantage of this recontextualization to provide an architectural response to the ecological challenges of the Anthropocene era?

With “Le Costil”, in Normandy (France), Anatomies d’Architecture proposes to approach ecological construction through an unprecedented experiment. The renovation of a traditional brick house (or “longère”) of 83m² with unprecedented ambitions: 0% concrete, 0% plastic and 100% natural materials within a radius of less than 100 km.
